This workshop is designed to showcase new and innovative ways of using LEGO as a teaching tool in your classroom. LEGO is a powerful tool to help develop skills and demonstrate understanding beyond our traditional text-heavy learning activities while also overcoming some common challenges in unlocking our students’ creative potential.
Using a variety of interactive activities, participants will learn new strategies for incorporating LEGO into lessons teaching creativity, communication, and problem solving, as well as using these versatile building blocks for gathering formative assessment data. Participants will also learn from the facilitators’ experiences as both learners and teachers using LEGO in the classroom while discussing tips for how to use LEGO as an important classroom resource.
